Beautifully Shaped

Hi everyone. Last night I finished my maths comments and had time to create a card. The card I created is for the latest Shabby Tea Room Challenge 'Beautifully Shaped.' For this challenge you need to create  a SHAPED card or project that is also inspired by THE COLORS IN THE PHOTO!  This week we're looking for 'shaped' cards -- NO squares or rectangles this week, please!
 I have never completed such a card and thought it would be really difficult. I found a template and then it started from there.

After tracing and cutting out the shabby dresser template, I used distress ink to edge the card. I then applied more distress ink to disguise the white background. I cut two rectangles from some floral background paper. inked the edges and applied to the background. I used some Spellbinders dies and pearls to add the accents to create the drawer fronts.

I used a different floral paper to complete the dresser. It is a semi cloud type shape. I inked it and added it to the background.

To create the mirror of the dresser, I used my latest Spellbinders die and teamed it with this lovely cameo stamp. To add some of the colours from the inspiration picture, I used flowers to fulfill this criteria.
Some lace, a key and a stamped sentiment finish my card.


Paper: Nitwit Collection Thimbles'n'threads

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps Cameo To Go

Ink: Distress Ink tattered Rose, Colorbox Chalk Ink Rose Coral

Other: Spellbinders Nestabilities classic ovals small and floral ovals, Spellbinders Shapeabilities fancy tags, Hooked on Craft flowers, Kaisercraft flowers and pearls, Bow easy, lace, card template

Thanks for stopping by!
